Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

This cookbook exists to augment the integration of Chef and Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC).

Back-compat for reboot_action

Chef 12.6 introduces a new property to the dsc_resource resource. When the API that is used by dsc_resource to enforce a desired state (the set method), the API returns a boolean noting if the DSC resource requested a reboot to continue.

This request is separate from any other mechanism that is used by components of the Windows operating system to indicate a reboot is needed (but may be in conjunction with one or more of them).

When this API returns that a reboot is requested, the reboot_action property is used to dynamically create a reboot resource. Valid arguments for reboot_action (at this time) are :reboot_now and :request_reboot. These are the same actions as the reboot resource takes.

This allows you to control reboot requests from DSC in a Chef-friendly fashion.

This cookbook adds reboot_action to Chef 12.4.x and 12.5.x.



This recipe will set the DSC Local Configuration Manager (LCM) to disabled for the PowerShell 5 preview builds that require it to use dsc_resource
